We have eaten in many restaurants in and around the Gendarmenmarkt but this was our first time in Brasserie which came to our attention from reviews by other tripadvisor users (thanks!). I think that what made us neglect it previously was that from outside it often looks empty and not particularly attractive, but in fact the action is taking place in the long room at the side which had many (mostly German) clients on the evening we visited. This main dining room is decorated in the art deco style that I like with a long bar. The busy staff were pleasant and professional. We started with soup followed by very generous portions of schnitzel and grilled pork fillet. There is a good and fairly priced wine list although some people stuck with beer. We enjoyed our visit here and will return when we are next in Berlin.
